Wednesday of this week Justice G.W. Dakan was called to the C.N. Humphrey farm near town to hold an inquest over the remains of a man who had committed suicide. The man proved to be B.F. Young, who was camped in the Humphrey pasture. Tuesday he borrowed a shot gun and it seems from the position he had loaded the gun and had tied a piece of wire to the trigger and laid down attaching the wire to his foot, and placing the muzzle of the gun under his chin ended his life. The only cause assigned for the rash act is that the man had been separated from his wife for three years and brooding over this perhaps induced him to end his miserable existence. In his hat, which had been placed near him, was found his knife, some tobacco and $26.60 also a letter addressed to J.E. Osborne, instructing him to sell his mules, use what money was needed for his burial expenses and send the remainder to his wife. The deceased was a man of about 35 years of age, and had only recently come to Jones county from McLennan county.
